Survival of oysters set on shells treated with Polystream* was investigated during 1963 and 1964. Treated and control shells were held in wire bags in the high-salinity intertidal seaside area of the Eastern Shore and in the moderate-salinity subtidal areas of the lower James River. Significantly more spat survived on treated shells than on controls. Differences in survival could not be attributed to absence of drill predation on treated shell.
